Stranahan House in Fort Lauderdale
The Stranahan House has been many things over the years. Built in 1901 as a trading post, it has been a post office, community center, town hall, private residence and restaurant.
Today, it's a museum that marks the eastern end of Fort Lauderdale's River Walk and is a launching site for ghost hunters, attracted by the stories that have surrounded the house since Frank Stranahan's suicide by drowning during the Great Depression. The house's history is Fort Lauderdale's history. Stranahan was one of the city's first settlers, and his wife, Ivy, was the first school teacher. Many claim the legendary couple has refused to fade into history, even in death.
Non-spooky group tours can be booked in advance every afternoon. Three different varieties of ghost-related tour can also be booked at Florida's most-haunted site.
